How do I extend the ring time on my mobile phone before calls are diverted to voicemail?

When activated, your mobile phone is set to ring for 10 seconds before being diverted to your voicemail service. To increase or decrease the ring time before an incoming is diverted to voicemail please follow the below steps.

 You can change the time in intervals of 5 seconds, anywhere from 5 - 30 seconds.

Telstra 4G:

  • Dial the following code **61*101**xx#
  • Replace the XX with a multiple of 5. For example **61*101**30# will make the mobile ring for 30 seconds before it diverts the call to voicemail. 

Optus:

  • Dial the following code **61*321**xx#
  • Replace the xx with a multiple of 5. For example **61*321**30# will make the mobile phone ring for 30 seconds before it diverts the call to voicemail. 

30 Seconds is the maximum ring time on all networks.
